Open RAN Policy Coalition forms to lobby governments on 5G security plans

Tuesday 5 May 2020 | 15:11 CET | News
A new industry coalition has formed to promote open RAN technologies among government policymakers. The Open RAN Policy Coalition includes many of the telecom operators from around the world that are testing open RAN equipment, as well as the hardware companies working on developing mobile radio networks based on open-source, modular products. They see open RAN as a possible answer to government concerns about 5G network security and call for the state to play a roll in supporting the new approach to building mobile networks.
